DWTS Season 17: Team FoxingAwesome vs. Team Spooky BomBom

It's week 7!  Last week nobody was eliminated so there are still 8 couples left.  The show started with an amazing group dance number.  An announcement was made at the start of the show.  The announcement is Cher will be judging and performing next week.  Also there will be team dances tonight.  Team captains were based on last weeks high scores.  Tonight somebody will be going home.

Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Valentin Chmerkovskiy:
She wants to be challenged by her partner because it makes her better.  This week she danced the Quickstep.  I didn't feel it was her best but it was good.  It lacked body contact and they broke hold a few times.  It was fun though.  Her score was 27 out of 30.

Brant Daugherty and Peta Murgatroyd:
He needs to be confident to impress the judges.  This week he danced the Jive.  This is one of my favorite styles.  I thought it was the best Jive we've seen this season.  It was fun and full of energy.  There was a minor slip but it was still great.  His score was 27 out of 30.

Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani:
Her partner has given her some challenging choreography.  This week she danced the Salsa.  I really liked it!  It didn't seem too challenging for her at all.  The lifts could've been a little bit cleaner though.  She is really improving a lot.  Her score was 26 out of 30.

Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke:
He is feeling a lot of pressure and the exhaustion is taking a toll on him.  This week he danced the Jive.  It wasn't typical but I liked it.  It wasn't perfect but his personality really shined.  He just made it seem so natural.  His score was 27 out of 30.

Amber Riley and Derek Hough:
They are both injured but are pushing through it.  This week she danced the Paso Doble.  I LOVED IT!  It had intensity and passion and power.  I just wanted more and more.  You couldn't even tell they had injuries.  She is still perfection.  Her score was 29 out of 30.

Bill Engvall and Emma Slater:
He can't believe he is still in the competition but he is glad he is.  This week he danced the Quickstep.  I thought it was pretty good.  It definitely wasn't perfect but he tries.  He didn't break hold or miss a step so he didn't give up.  His score was 23 out of 30.

Snooki and Sasha Farber:
She's having a hard time juggling dancing and being a mom.  This week she danced the Samba.  I thought she did a great job.  It had a lot of speed but still had control.  She just needs to let go and have fun.  She is too hard on herself.   Her score was 27 out of 30.

Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff:
They struggled with choreography and kept changing it.  This week he danced the Cha Cha.  I loved everything about this!  It was technical and still really fun.  I also loved the music!  It was a comeback from last week.  His score was 29 out of 30.

Team Spooky BomBom:
The team captain is Elizabeth.  She chose Leah, Bill, and Snooki.  The dance style is freestyle.  This means there are no rules.  They are the underdogs for sure.  I loved the zombie theme.  Bill was my favorite because he entertained me.  Their score was 27 out of 30.

Team FoxingAwesome:
The team captain is Amber.  She chose Brant, Corbin, and Jack.  The dance style is also freestyle.  They are dancing to What Does The Fox Say.  I'm expecting HUGE things.  I LOVED every second of this dance!  It was AMAZING!  Corbin killed his solo!  Their score was 30 out of 30.

Amber, Corbin, Brant, Jack, Elizabeth, Leah, and Bill are safe.  Snooki is eliminated.  I'm kind of shocked because she has been improving each week.
